Time Frenzy [electronic resource]: Keeping Up With Tomorrow

Gliner, Robert
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
One of the ironies of the ubiquitous technologies now in use is that they were supposed to save time and improve the quality of life. What went wrong? This cautionary program examines the social and ethical consequences of the increasingly fast pace of life in the U.S. It contrasts the American 24/7 work ethic with the business traditions of other countries and, in the process, examines the impact of technology on personal relationships, education, health, and the environment.
